After missing nearly five games with a strained right calf, Manny Ramirez was placed on the disabled list, per the Dodgers via Twitter:
#Dodgers place Manny Ramirez on the DL and reinstate Brad Ausmus from the DL
In a somewhat surprising move, the Dodgers will now, at least temporarily, carry three catchers, as Ausmus was activated from the 60-day disabled list.
The Ramirez injury is worse than originally feared, reports Evan Drellich of MLB.com:
Joe Torre calls strain "significant." Said it would be 3 weeks out for Manny Ramirez.
